One thing to consider - With the co-pilot side MFD in split-screen, a pilot/passenger has a usable artificial horizon display like on the pilot (PFD) side. Nice, if your pilot/passenger wants to fly.

I'm nowhere near the point of building a panel, but my wife will be in the right seat often, when I fly. Does anybody ever consider "entertainment" for the right side of the panel?

I have an Ipad in the guardian mount and am very happy with the decision. With a sentry it has its own ads-b source of info, integrates seamlessly with the GNX375, independent backup AHRS and its own power. If I load a plan in the GNX375, it will automatically come up with a prompt asking if I want the plan xfilled in Foreflight. Any flight plan changes can be made on the ipad and sent directly to the GNX375. It gives my passenger their own independent flight screen they can use, make changes etc without fear of changing anything in the PFD.

Are there any systems that would allow her to wear a noise cancelling headset and watch a movie on an iPad?

Looks nice. One question: Why are you putting headset jacks in the panel? (at least they look like headset jacks). The 14 has them on the floor either side of the seats, and that keeps the wires out of the way nicely.

Great point! I just didn't know.

Looks great. I would consider changing the position of audio panel an AP-Panel…(like Marks example here). you will use the audio panel farless than AP…

I have gone back and forth with that so many times. Most GA airplanes I flew had the Audio Panel at the top so there's that. All the airplanes I flew with the AP panel at the top had autothrottles, so there's that. I reasoned that many of the functions on the AP panel required a power adjustment, so why not put it close.
It's just about time to flip the quarter...

Thanks for the input. I need all I can get!
